  • Goedhuis, November 2023

    Benoit has two different parcels in this enclosed and relatively warm Grand Cru. He describes this as his most sensual of wines, stating that it “sparkles.” Aromas of honey and pine kernel, it starts gentle and fine, with light white fruit flavours. There is a perfect balance between subtle tension and graceful elegance. Very harmonious, with tremendous persistence on the finish.

  • Burghound, October 2023, Score: 91-94

    A ripe but agreeably cool nose combines an array of spice elements with those of oyster shell, pear and pretty floral wisps. The super-sleek and wonderfully refined medium weight flavors aren't particularly dense but they do offer a beguiling sense of energy that also suffuses the very dry, focused and highly persistent finale. Like the MdT, this too could use better depth though more should almost certainly develop if given a chance. Drink 2030+

  • Decanter, October 2023, Score: 92

    Plenty of concentration. Pure, ripe peach fruit but lots of acidity and drive as well. The warmer site of this grand cru comes through, yet the wine is still elegant and shows good balance. A fine example, with 40% of the blend aged in barrel. Drink 2025-2031

  • Jasper Morris MW, December 2023, Score: 93-95

    40% oak. A clear pale lemon colour with a light green tint. There is an attractive smoky touch adding to the mineral freshness of the bouquet. Then the additional richness of fruit on the palate which this vintage gives. Even so, the fruit profile is the usual concentrated white fruit I expect from Vaudésir. A fine long finish. Drink from 2029-2038.

It is quite something to be the 14th generation of your family making wines in the same town since 1620. Unsurprisingly over this 400-year period, the Droins have built up a sizeable 26-hectare estate and an enviable portfolio of appellations from both Grands and Premiers Crus within the Chablis region. Benoît joined his father at the estate in 1999 at the age of 24, and for the last decade has assumed total control. During this period, he has continued the family’s respect for their fine terroir and soil but has quietly adjusted the winemaking style. The use of oak is less prevalent today than in his father Jean-Paul’s time, resulting in a greater terroir identity to the domaine’s wines and a mineral drive and edge. At the risk of testing his natural modesty, Benoît is very firmly positioning himself and the estate as one of Chablis’s greats. Regularly achieving top spot in blind tastings, in our view his brilliance is unsurpassed today.Read less
